this was a big part of who you were on the court. >> that hurt me right there. going to dallas, at first, when we did the trade, the first nine out of 11 games was on television. and the crowd, the fans, everybody just was chewing straws. and i think it brought so much attention to the straw thing that, you know, e commissioner, he wasn't having it. you know, i don't want any kids out here chewing straws, they choke on them or something. i totally understand. you can chew the straw, just not while you're playing. that's cool, thas a great compromise. >> when you look back at the situaon from last season, and it started off you, antawn jamison, gbert arenas and everything falls out. you and anton end up leaving. when you look back on that, how shocking is that that that happened to you? and was that somethg that just kind of left your mind once you moved on.
